All Manuals > LispWorks IDE User Guide > 27 The Application Builder


27.1 Introduction

The Application Builder makes it easier to create applications, typically by calling deliver . It helps you to control and debug the delivery process. On Intel Macintosh computers, it also eases the building of universal binaries. On all platforms it can also be used to save a development image, calling save-image .

To create an Application Builder, choose Window > Tools > Application Builder or click in the LispWorks toolbar.

Note: the Application Builder needs deliver (or save-image ) functionality and therefore it is not available in LispWorks Personal Edition.

On first use the Application Builder appears all set to build the CAPI example Hello World, as shown in The Application Builder with the Hello World example below.

Figure 27.1 The Application Builder with the Hello World example

Choose Build > Build or click to build the Hello World example.

Then choose Build > Run or click to run the Hello World example that you just built.

Note that these Application Builder commands are also available on the Build menu.
